Richardson Returns To NNHS
Richardson Returns To NNHS

RED OAK -- If anyone walked into the Northern Nash High School Gymnasium last Saturday and wondered what all the buzz was about, all that needed to happen was a simple finger point toward the scoreboard on the court side farthest away from the main entrance.

CHALLENGING FIELD

STANHOPE -- Southern Nash's annual Thomas Cowles Duals Wrestling Tournament always features an impressive field -- but this year might rank among the deepest group of squads ever on display at the SNHS Gymnasium.
Class 1-A powerhouse Rosewood made an appearance and finished as the team champion at the tournament, which features a dual format.
But there were plenty of other talented squads in attendance, including the likes of Wake County Class 4-A titans Millbrook, Leesville Road and Middle Creek, along with a touted Farmville Central contingent.

THE NEXT LEVEL

STANHOPE -- Welcome to the land of the great unknown.
This year, the Big East Conference hasn't had any dual wrestling meets, so teams have just seen each other at the usual Saturday tournaments across the area.
So it's hard to gauge which teams are the strongest heading into Saturday's Big East Dual Team Championships.
Action will begin at 9 a.m. at the Wilson Hunt High School Gymnasium, with the top-two finishers earning spots in the Class 3-A State Dual Tournament.

N. Central foiled vs. Bulldogs

NASHVILLE -- With star Destiny Anstead unavailable due to an illness, Nash Central Middle School girls basketball coach Minnie White knew that scoring would be at a premium for her club during last Thursday's home matchup against the Phillips Bulldogs.
But not even White would have imagine this as the Trojans just four baskets as part of a tough 8-7 loss to Phillips in a key Tri-County Conference showdown at the NCMS Gymnasium.

Central gets past Phillips

NASHVILLE -- Getting back into the swing of things following Christmas Break and the recent poor weather is now the main priority for the Tri-County Conference's boys basketball squads.
Nash Central Middle School will be looking for a strong finish to the 2016-17 campaign, and the Trojans took a huge step toward that goal by securing a 55-34 home triumph over the Phillips Bulldogs last Thursday afternoon at the NCMS Gymnasium.

Winstead tabbed for Hall of Fame

LOUISBURG -- The advent of fast-pitch softball in the early-1990s changed the sporting landscape for area high school teams.
But little did Southern Nash's Brandy Winstead Frazier know how much the switch would impact the rest of her life.
After the North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced the move away from slow-pitch, Winstead was sent by then-SN coach Rosalie Bardin to a camp at Louisburg College to learn the nuances of fast-pitch.
